JBoss.org Community Documentation Left join read ahead

Left join read ahead is an enhanced on-find read-ahead strategy. It allows you to preload in one SQL query not only fields from the base instance but also related instances which can be reached from the base instance by CMR navigation. There are no limitation for the depth of CMR navigations. There are also no limitations for cardinality of CMR fields used in navigation and relationship type mapping, i.e. both foreign key and relation-table mapping styles are supported. Let's look at some examples. Entity and relationship declarations can be found below.
